Our Vision: JCoSS is an academic, aspirational learning community, known and respected for our pioneering spirit, our humanity and our excellent outcomes.

Our Ethos: If you think you know what working in a Jewish school might be like, be ready to think again.  Our outward-looking and pluralist ethos combines an embrace of open-minded values with a deep love of the varied riches of Jewish tradition.  The staff and leadership team includes different faiths, and none, at all levels, and the school has a culture of purposeful good humour and humanity. We are a faith school like no other.

Our Results: Our early cohorts have achieved outstanding GCSE results, with 40% of grades at A*/A and just under a quarter of students achieving 9A or better.  We have averaged +0.5 for Progress 8 in the two years so far, consistently achieve ALPS Grade 2 at GCSE and A level and were a top 100 non-selective school nationally in 2015.  Our first full cohort has secured several places for Oxbridge, Medicine and Vet Science.

Staff Benefits: We appoint on potential as well as experience, and we are committed to supporting staff development.  Several non-teaching colleagues have trained with us as teachers; our rich CPL programme includes full induction for new staff including NQTs, NPQH/SL/ML programmes and financial support for MA courses, Action Research projects and many other opportunities.  Additional responsibilities are always considered for suitable candidates and we offer NQTs employment for the last few weeks of the summer term. Our admissions policy includes priority places for the children of all staff.

Our Location & Community: The school is in beautiful new £48m buildings overlooking the Green Belt.  It is easily accessible from Northern, Piccadilly and Overground rail links and buses run past the entrance.  We attract students from eloquent and supportive communities across North London and Hertfordshire. We are planning an expansion in response to over-subscription.

This Role: This is an excellent opportunity for a passionate and well-qualified Classics teacher to join our growing department. The post will involve teaching Latin from Year 8 to GCSE as well as Classical Civilisation A Level.

Additional responsibilities may be available for suitably qualified and experienced candidates, and we offer NQTs employment for the last few weeks of the summer term.
